Country hitmakers Russell Dickerson and Chris Lane also join The Worldwide Beautiful Tour lineup, with each rotating direct support slots throughout the tour. An additional first of four opening act will be announced in 2020.     

Tickets for The Worldwide Beautiful Tour will go on sale Friday, November 15th at 10am local time via Ticketmaster, by calling 609.378.7512, or visiting the venue box office.   

“Breakthrough entertainer” (Associated Press) Kane Brown continues to “defy-genres” and “break boundaries” (Billboard) in country music. The leading vocalist’s latest collaboration, the “brutally catchy” (Rolling Stone) “One Thing Right” with internationally renowned DJ/producer Marshmello has already amassed nearly 400 million streams worldwide, and can be found HERE. In addition to Brown’s vocal highlighted on the track, which “shines with his deep twang that is both warm and dangerous,” (Rolling Stone) he also co-wrote “One Thing Right.”    

Noted as being the “future of Country” (Billboard) and one of “31 People Changing the South” (Time), Brown released his sophomore Experiment in November 2018, which debuted #1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums chart. With Experiment, Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to debut at the top of the Billboard 200, and only one of three country artists to top the Billboard 200 chart in all of 2018. To date, Experiment has produced back-to-back #1 hits--the Platinum-certified singles, “Lose It” and “Good As You,”-- and was ranked by The New York Times as one of the Top 10 Best Albums of the Year. An ACM, AMA, Billboard and CMT Music Awards nominee, Brown first broke through the country charts with his debut self-titled album, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts and spent a record-breaking 13 weeks at the top of the chart. Brown is the first artist in Billboard history to Top all 5 Billboard Country charts simultaneously and with the 4X Platinum certifications of “Heaven” and “What Ifs,” he is one of only five country acts with multiple 4X Platinum hits (joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift.)          

With “crowd-pleasing original tunes and the voice to make them memorable” (The Roanoke Times), Brown is “not your typical every day act,” and has earned praise as "the boundary-defying future of country music,” (Atlanta Journal Constitution) and “one of the genre’s biggest and most unique artists” (The Commercial Appeal). The arena headliner who puts on “an extraordinarily ebullient concert” (Kansas City Star) continues to earn praise and break concert records with his sold-out live performances, including a recent record at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for most fans in attendance for a country act and with his recent headlining Staples Center show, which sold out in less than two hours.

ABOUT KANE BROWN:
With his #1 Billboard 200 release, Experiment, Kane Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to debut at the top of the Billboard 200, and only one of three country artists to top the Billboard 200 chart all year (2018). An “artist to pay attention to” and “the future of country”(Billboard), Brown was named a Breakthrough Artist of the Year by the Associated Press and one of “31 People Changing the South” (Time). The AMA, ACM and People’s Choice Award winning and nominated artist is one of only five country acts with multiple 4X Platinum hits (joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift). Brown first topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with the release of his self-titled debut album (2016) and again with the release of Kane Brown Deluxe Edition (2017), which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top 5 on Billboard 200. With his debut album, Brown made history by becoming the first artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts with his breakthrough #1 Top Country Album; #1 debuting Country Digital Song, the 4X Platinum “Heaven” and #1 Country Airplay, Hot Country Song and Country Streaming Song, the 4X Platinum “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina.

ABOUT RUSSELL DICKERSON:
The Nashville-based multi-platinum recording artist, Russell Dickerson, touts an impressive three back-to-back no. 1 singles: the Double Platinum debut hit, “Yours,” dubbed the “biggest love song of the year,” followed by Platinum sophomore single, “Blue Tacoma” (featured in the hit “X-Men” franchise film “Logan”), and America’s 2019 Summer anthem “Every Little Thing,” Dickerson’s latest single to sit atop country charts. Dickerson’s debut album charted at no. 5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, arriving at no. 1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart and garnered his ACM nominations for “Song of the Year,” “New Male Vocalist of the Year,” and CMT nomination for “Breakthrough Video of the Year.” He was also nominated for an iHeart Radio Music Award for “Best New County Artist.” With a profound dedication to breeding authentic human connection, People Magazine’s “One to Watch” and festival fan favorite spends as much time on the road with the fans who made “Yours” the undisputed wedding song of 2018. Hot off Thomas Rhett’s Very Hot Summer Tour, Dickerson will join Kane Brown on the Worldwide Beautiful Tour this Spring 2020, which follows his national co-headlining tour with Carly Pearce earlier this year. Russell is the launch artist on Triple Tigers Records, a joint venture with Sony Music.
